Kyle, great to hear this,
“In one of Dr. Gottman’s studies with couples in their mid-forties and sixties, he discovered that happy couples spent 65% of their time in the neutral box. While unhappy couples, on average, spent 47% of their time in the neutral box.
12 years later, the happy couples spent about 70% in the neutral box. Ironically, a strong connection and high levels of trust leads to both partners needing less soothing and repair-making from each other over time”.
